The workshop is recommended to anyone who would like to make the transition towards dancing in a close embrace or enhance their understanding of the embrace.

The course material is designed in such a way so that you will greatly benefit if you can stay on and practice after the class. You may also ask help from the teachers during this practice time. Attending this informal Practica will introduce you to the social context of tango so that progressing to the more formal social dances called Milongas will be much easier. You may stay for the full two hours or leave earlier if you need to do so.

During this course you will learn how to achieve correct tango posture and thus create the all important tango connection.

What to expect at our Saturday tango classes & workshops
The material we teach on this level is suitable for dancing both in an open embrace or the close embrace. Where appropriate we explain how to adapt the material to different embraces. Majority of our students prefer to develop their skills in the close embrace style especially. We introduce new vocabulary (as a continuation to our improver level), enhance musicality and expand the understanding of how tango elements can be varied and merged. You benefit from theses classes most if you dance on a regular basis.
